Summary0000552: Backslashes handled improperly
Description



The documentation says that special characters, such as the
double quote, can be quoted with a backslash. It doesn't say anything
about quoting backslashes. When "\\" is written on a label, dotty
displays two backslashes, and "dot -Tps" generates Postscript code
that seems to loop infinitely. Also, when saving graphs, "dotty"
does not quote backslashes and creates invalid "dot" files.
Steps To Reproduce

graph G { a [label="\\"] }
Additional Information
It doesn't seem to be a bug in the lexer, but a bug in later stages.
